Our Mission

Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Our Vision

A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

About Iowa Heartland

Iowa Heartland Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help volunteer, support our mission and apply for assistance regardless of their race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.

As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

Board of Directors

Habitat relies on volunteers of all types, including our dedicated Board of Directors.
